Tjiwi Kimia organized a series of events involving employees, former employees associated with Tjiwi Kimia, and the local community.

The 51st Anniversary event at Tjiwi Kimia began with the inauguration of a Solar Power Plant (PLTS) on the factory's roof. This is part of Tjiwi Kimia's sustainability efforts as a part of APP Sinar Mas and to support the Indonesian government. In collaboration with SUN Energy, the roof-mounted PLTS was inaugurated by the Governor of East Java, Khofifah Indar Parawansa.

"What Tjiwi Kimia has done serves as a reference, not only for companies in East Java but also in Indonesia," stated Khofifah.

Solar panels were installed on the roofs of 11 buildings within the Tjiwi Kimia area. With an area of approximately 11.4 hectares and a capacity of 9.8 MWp, these solar panels are expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 12,400 tons of CO2e per year.

"With the installation of PLTS, we have entered a new era where renewable energy becomes an integral part of our operations," said Suhendra Wiriadinata, Director of APP Sinar Mas.

The peak of the 51st Anniversary activities at Tjiwi Kimia was marked by a charity walk involving 3,051 Tjiwi Kimia employees. The walk circled the Tjiwi Kimia factory, covering a distance of 6.5 kilometers. The event featured an open-vehicle and antique motorcycle parade, a costume parade involving employees from various divisions, and the traditional Reog Ponorogo performance to liven up the celebration.

In addition, a UMKM (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises) fair was held, with the participation of 30 UMKMs associated with Tjiwi Kimia employees, former employees, and local residents offering a variety of food and beverage products. This was done in support of advancing these local businesses.

The event concluded with a prize drawing, offering attractive prizes such as electric bicycles and other electronic items.

"The 51st Anniversary celebration is a moment that showcases our unity and spirit, as well as proof that Tjiwi Kimia has risen after the COVID-19 pandemic. With unwavering determination, we demonstrate our ability to contribute and deliver the best. Tjiwi Kimia continues to work for the nation," concluded Beny Haryawan, Public Affairs and Relations Manager at PT Tjiwi Kimia.
